What makes me ICONIC?

Not all superheroes wear capes– some wear lab coats and stethoscopes. My superhero persona fights to create a safer environment for African American women in the healthcare system. My forcefield makes me bulletproof and I have the ability to protect anyone that comes inside of it.

One day, I’m going to be a healthcare CEO and build a hospital in my small, rural town of Brownsville, Tennessee. Some might think that’s crazy, but I’m inspired by Madam C.J. Walker, a businesswoman and philanthropist who saw a need in her community and did not stop until she reached her goal.

I’m determined and I’m going places, but I’ll never go alone. I’ll always bring my community with me. My small town life has made my life big and I will pay it forward.
